What is engineering?

Postby Bex » Sun Nov 16, 2008 11:33 pm

I know this probably sounds like a really dumb question, but what is "engineering"?

I know you get aeronautical engineers ( very impressive sounding ) and electrical engineers, but how many other types are there?

And is there such a thing a generel engineering job?

There are so many different types of engineering that it would be hard to say that anyone is a general engineer. I would say that engineers range from people who construct and maintain machines to those people who are designing road, planes, space rockets etc etc.

It is a fascinating area for anyone who is interested in creating things! I would suggest that its not just for people who are good at maths either...its for those who are very creative and can think about things in an abstract and interesting way.
